Journal / shop on the mesa
Using only materials derived from nature join The Dogwood Dyer at Shop on the Mesa in the desert environment of Yucca Valley California to gain knowledge and experiment with the time honored art of natural dyeing.
San Dielgo based textile artist Rachel Ehlin of @mrblueskye came out to our shop earlier this Spring to teach silk rag weaving. Each student used silk sari rags - Rachel picked out a beautiful desert inspired palette, repurposed old Indian fabrics cutting them into yarn size strips. Student picked out their colored striped and created beautiful one of a kind woven pieces. Some students decided to display as wallhangings and others finished the ends to create a small but very special rug.
Artisan Pop Up Market that took place last month at Shop on the Mesa. Such a wonderful group of artists, designers and creatives filled our outdoor space! Look forward to hosting another market hopefully soon!
In Conversation: Alma Allen & J.B. Blunk .... We're excited Shop on the Mesa is doing a POP UP in the Vault Museum Design Shop - featuring some of our favorite desert provisions. Stop in to see the stunning exhibit and check out the wonderfully curated museum shop!
